Alexis Sanchez has suggested that he will "soon" be on his way to the United States to join up with his Manchester United teammates on their pre-season tour.

Sanchez was not part of the squad that flew from Manchester Airport to Los Angeles on Sunday due to a 'personal administrative issue', which related to a visa.

The former Arsenal attacker had previously been handed a 16-month prison sentence for tax fraud, which saw the US government deny him a visa.

On Wednesday, United boss Jose Mourinho revealed that he was still hopeful the Chile international would be able to fly to the US before their matches in the International Champions Cup.

Sanchez has now given a positive update on the situation from Carrington, with the 29-year-old posting an image with a caption which suggested that he would soon board a flight to the US.

"The last training in Manchester. Soon [American flag]", read the selfie caption.

United will begin their pre-season preparations with a clash against Club America on July 20, before facing San Jose Earthquakes on Sunday night ahead of their first International Champions Cup match with AC Milan on July 26.
